product design

BLUES· 2016-11-27 10:36:40

to say a thing happened yesterday, my colleagues send me plate flow company forum, including technical forum, forum product data, receive the following message, OUTLOOK2013 interface.

don't know if you look at this picture, the visual focus will be in where?

just over simple usability testing to find colleagues what they see is: the exclamation mark, with an attachment, no text messages.

my intuition, there is an attachment, then double-click start attachments, see the contents inside, only technology forum data, then find colleagues: why not product forum data? Screenshots come over to see, do have.

I a closer look, the original "EXCEL document back to the right distance, a paper clip, said accessories, a number of "4" 4 annex.

really ah, I just work too fast, did not see the tip on the right, click the mouse at the time, accessories become blue, that is selected, no 4 annex, "font-family: style= 4 annex, double-click to open Excel file, then see content less, have asked colleagues to communicate.

re checking, found double moment, 4 attachment is launched, but only in the EXCLE program pop-up flash, do not look to perception.

just a few minutes from this product experience, said the reflection on the principle of interaction design products:

visual order, is the product manager in interactive design the visual design must be considered. Products in the first time, so that the user's first focus, the focus of the product manager to set the focus. For example, the message here, the first message from the sender, title, content, and then it is the annex, a clear expression of a few attachments.

here that is the visual focus deviation, the expression of how to more effectively, interested readers can think, welcomed the exchange of.

Internet browsing action is not to read, but also not to see, rapid scanning, glance, vast amounts of information, the fast pace of work, not a a slowly. As we work in the mail, I believe that many people have a lot of mail inside the mail did not read, even open, not necessarily every word has been swept. And this is certainly not the text messages, see annex, sweep, oh, there is only one accessory.

do product design, we need to consider, if multiple attachments, how to allow users to quickly perceive the first time? That requires us to focus on as far as possible, to strengthen the relevance of important information, weakening and eliminating irrelevant information.

finally attach the product usability principles of Nielsen, for your reference.

Nelson ten usability principles of

helpful hints, the best way is: 1, without prompting; 234 prompt; "font-family:;" > help document.  


finally prompted the next: send mail, if there are attachments, in the text which shows that there are several accessories, what format, respectively, what is it?
